Forever Loved with Rhonda

Happy Saturday to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

I have a project featuring the February Club Q kits and one of our all new PowderPuff Chalk Ink colors, Warm Sand to share with you today.

Forever Loved
Forever Loved Scrapbook Page for Quick Quotes featuring February Club Q by Rhonda Van Ginkel

For this project, the base is a chipboard 12x12 sheet that comes in the kits. I used the envelope pocket here as a focal point for my page. I love that it can be used to hold your private thoughts and journaling. 

Once I had my layers determined, I stamped some textures in a variety of PowderPuff Chalking Inks, Midnight Confessions, Java and Mocha Mama.

The "Forever" chipboard sentiment was inked with Java, then I stamped some filigree pattern on it using our new Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I thought it added a bit of a softness.

The trim included in the kits has such a great texture, I layered it under my sentiment before adhering it with foam dimensional squares.

Cards Inspiration with Robin

Happy Thursday! Robin here with a quick and simple card using some of the new Quick Quotes paper and PowderPuff Chalking Inks.

IMG_0314

I find it usually difficult to design a card for a man, but I think this one would work. I used ivory card stock for the base. I then used some of the Gypsy Road design paper. I also tied a black ribbon that I had in my stash already, and used a stamp that I had also. I inked all the edges with Antique Linen and stamped the phrase with Warm Sand.

I love the new inks and papers. They are awesome. I hope you love them too.

Off the Page with Alicia

Hi! Alicia here today with an altered project for Quick Quotes!  I have been moving my scrap room and came across a cigar box and my creative juices started to flow!
 
It was just before Valentine's Day so I thought of my husband and what a great gift I could make. I started with the brand new Gypsy Road paper collection. I measured all the surfaces and cut pieces of paper to fit. Despite measuring there is always so adjustments to be made especially when you want the lid to close. I did remove the original hardware, cover the box and replace it for a finished look.


I added plenty of pieces from the Quick Quotes Bundle Travel and cut some travel related die cuts. I fussy cut a piece of Gypsy Road 100 for the stamps and used a piece from Frames Bag-o-Chips to frame the "address". I found a cool stamp and used Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalking Ink  to "cancel" the stamps.


I sprayed the exterior with a couple of different spray inks to distress and used plenty of Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Inks to color, edge and distress.


I added just a drop of enamel accents to make a center for my compass.


I distressed the interior lid with plenty of Rusty Nail PowderPuff Chalking Ink, it was the only part left uncovered because I like the logos.


And finally a side view that shows the "handles" I die cut from Celebrate 400

Featuring NEW Inks with Crystal!

Hi guys! Crystal here, playing with Quick Quotes BRAND NEW 2015 PowderPuff Chalking Inks. The colors are gorgeous! I decided to make a card with the new colors using some clear card stock. This was a fun little project that is clean and simple.


 
By stamping on a clear card stock you can give your card dimension!  


I found it is best to begin by stamping your solid card stock, then proceed to the outer clear card stock.
 

Chalk ink is so versatile, and the colors showed up beautifully on a similar color card stock.



This is a close up of the inks. There is a huge difference on color when stamping on the colored card stock compared to the clear. Which makes stamping with Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Inks so fun!

Quick Quotes Products Used:
Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking Ink (New!)
Latte PowderPuff Chalking Ink (New!)
Antique Linen Powderpuff Chalking Ink (New!)
Fushia PowderPuff Chalking Ink (New!)

Focus on Catalina Island with Martha!

Hi everyone, Martha Lucia here with two quick ideas to share with you using both sides of the Catalina Island 200 Paper. These new 12"x12" paper collections are totally gorgeous and for me was very difficult to decide what side to use, so finally I worked with both.

DSC03207

My first project is a Gift Card Envelop or Holder that I called BYOP, "Buy Your Own Present".
During the last years I have discovered more and more that gift cards and money seem to be a crowd favorite. It simplifies things, but sometimes money and gift cards don’t feel very personal. So at this time I decided to create special envelopes because the packaging becomes even more important so as to make the gift feel meaningful.

  DSC03194


  • To make this envelope I used both the sides of Catalina Island 200 Paper and some pre-cut flowers that come with the Gypsi Road Embellishments
  • Using the Framelits of Envelope Liners I cut two medium envelopes. 
  • I pasted the lateral sides and the bottom and folding the lap of the one of them to show the other face of the designs. 
  • As you can see, I decorated with a double bow of thick baker's twine and a flower. 
  • To place the gift card I use a Die Cut Two Tags Bigz and to make the letters I used the Thinlits Little Letters.


Envelope Gift Card 

Now we can talk about the card, my second project.

  • I made this using a banner that I cut from the same paper, the Catalina Island 200. 
  • I decided to stamp my Spanish image using the Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalk Ink over Whisper White Cardstock.
  • This ink brought a great color that coordinates perfectly with the others of my project. 
  • For the Celebrate banner detail I used Blue Lagoon PowderPuff Chalk Ink and cut it with my scissors. 
  • As a final touch I added a double bow of baker's twine with a blue button on top.

Hi everyone, Donna here with a project I made using Quick Quotes new lines Joy Ride and Gypsy Road.

I was inspired by the names alone to do this project of my husbands first ever new car!  Last year we had a terrible hail storm and it totaled my car. Well, my husband never, ever had a new car so off we went to look for a new car, he fell in love with the Ford Explorer. Anyway, for this project I could not decide which line to use, so I ended up using a bit of both!


Here is the tire I cut from my Silhouette. I added some screw brads to replicate lug nuts. I also added some "oil spills" using black paint.


On the chipboard key and the journaling tag which was made from Grungeboard I used PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Coal Miner. What an easy way to color  these items, no paint brushes just dab it on until you get the desired effect.  As you can see it pretty much looks the same. The only difference is the grungeboard has a little bit of texture, but totally awesome and easy!

February Club Q with Connie!

Hi, Connie here with a couple of projects using the February Club Q kits by Quick Quotes.  The kit is full of pretty die-cuts and lots of pretty paper.  I had a ton of fun and got my hubby's Valentine made!


  • I started out with three boxes, all an inch difference in size.  
  • Example: 4"X 4", 3"X 3" and 2"X 2"
  • Take a 1/4" of each box and cut 6 panels of paper, for each box size.
  • Example: large box, 3 3/4" X 3 3/4".  
  • Do the same for the medium and small box.  
  • Shade all the panels with Razz-berry PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
  • Adhere each panel to the sides and tops of all three boxes.
 




You are ready to fill the boxes with your favorite treat ~ enjoy!

Layout Inspiration with Robin

Hey! Robin here with a new layout design. For this design I used the Joy Ride and Gypsy Road designer paper from Quick Quotes.

IMG_0280

When I saw the Joy Ride paper with phrases like "explore" and "journey", I thought of this picture I took of my two children at the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park. There was a lot of exploring done that day. I chose a pic of them together.

I made the flowers using the patterned paper also. There are several layers of die cut flowers. All of the papers were inked using the PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Khaki. That is such an awesome color. I absolutely love it! The scalloped border on the left side is cut from the Gypsy Road paper. It is so pretty.
